Jujutsu Kaisen fans are rejoicing with the return of Japan-based band ALI on major streaming sites Apple Music, Spotify, and YouTube.
Below is the re-edited version of LOST IN PARADISE feat. AKLO (Jujutsu Kaisen first ending theme), which was released on Nov. 18, 2021.
ALI stands for Alien Liberty International and is a multinational hip hop/funk band formed in Shibuya, Tokyo. All members of the band are mixed with roots in Japan, Europe, America, Asia, and Africa. Their current members include LEO (Vocal, Leader), LUTHFI (Bass), ALEX (Percussion), YU (Saxophone), JIN (Keyboard), and CÉSAR (Guitar).
In addition to LOST IN PARADISE feat. AKLO, ALI is famous for singing Wild Side, the opening theme song of the first season of Beastars.
The band temporarily went on hiatus after former drummer KAHADIO's controversy in May 2021. However, on November 18, band leader LEO published a message to all fans saying the group is ready to resume activities.
AKLO is a half-Japanese, half-Mexican rapper affiliated with One Year War Music. His debut album, The Package (2012), hit the No.1 spot on the iTunes chart in Japan and was nominated as Best New Artist of that Year.
His single, RGTO, was nominated for Best Male Video at the 2015 MTV VMAJ (MTV Video Music Awards Japan).
With ALI back and AKLO steadily rising in his career, Jujutsu Kaisen fans have plenty of dope music to keep them entertained in anticipation of Jujutsu Kaisen 0, which premieres on Dec. 24, 2021.
